April & Mike
About this Cook
I am an Emergency/Trauma nurse. I've been married for 5 years with 2 "furry children."
My favorite things to cook
Authentic Mexican good. Anything new!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love family get togethers, especially around the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
MY first family holiday meal! FABULOUS!
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married, I wanted to bread porkchops to fry in the pan. We were out of flour, so I used cornstarch, it looked the same!! One bite and all the moisture in our entire bodies was sucked out! Just because it looks the same doesn't mean...

General Tsao's Chicken
For the sauce, add CORNSTARCH A LITTLE AT A TIME until it is a "little thinner than gravy" consistency. I DIDN'T FRY OR BREAD my chicken and it was excellent!! NO MSG! I also used dry pepper flakes...AWESOME!!!

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza
I used dough from TRADER JOE'S. This is an excellent meal for all us hot wing lovers!!! Definitely pre-cook your dough to PREVENT SOGGINESS! You also don't need a whole 16oz bottle of dressing! Put it on according to your preference. If you would like to try this recipe, but aren't keen on really hot, DON'T USE THE WHOLE BOTTLE OF HOT SAUCE. I liked it, but I love hot stuff!! Use any mix of cheese you like! It doesn't take long at all in the oven!!
